OpenDNS Releases Managed Service Provider (MSP) Co-Branding Resources

Partner Enablement Pack provides MSPs with the knowledge and materials to deliver enterprise-grade security services

SAN FRANCISCO--()--OpenDNS, a leading provider of cloud-delivered security, today announced the release of the Partner Enablement Pack, which enables their MSP partners to differentiate their managed service offerings by communicating with their customers more effectively about security and the evolving threat landscape. The Partner Enablement Pack is available to OpenDNS MSP partners as of May 5, 2015.

The Partner Enablement Pack provides resources to support Umbrella for MSPs, a cloud-delivered security service that helps MSPs proactively decrease malware infections on customer devices by over 80 percent. With fewer infections, MSPs free up technical resources so that they can focus on growing their businesses instead of reactively putting out fires. Umbrella’s cloud-delivered security prevents malware infections without impacting device performance. Umbrella’s multi-tenant dashboard makes it easy to manage many customers with centralized settings and PSA integrations, making it the ideal solution for MSPs. Umbrella includes desktop, roaming laptop, and even BYOD protection that can be deployed in just minutes.

“In the increasingly competitive IT space, an MSP needs to be able to communicate beyond feeds, speeds and technology specifications. They need to be their customers’ trusted security advisor and must show the value they are providing to the business,” said Dmitriy “Dima” Kumets, senior product manager, OpenDNS. “The Partner Enablement Pack gives OpenDNS MSP partners pre-built marketing collateral to help them present to their customers about the latest changes in security. It’s a robust collection of content and tools to help them express and elevate the value of their offering.”

The Partner Enablement Pack includes:

  • Co-branded PowerPoint deck for explaining security to SMBs
  • Co-branded datasheet
  • Co-branded Solution Briefs
    • “Why antivirus and firewalls are not enough”
    • “Securing Guest Wi-Fi”
    • “Web Filtering”
    • “Cloud Services Report”
  • Case studies that they can share with customers in specific verticals
  • Messaging framework for MSPs to build their own marketing materials

“My clients expect me to be the subject matter expert across a wide variety of IT topics, whether it’s networking, disaster recovery, or security,” said Eric Rockwell, president, centrexIT. “When they created the Partner Enablement Pack, OpenDNS incorporated a lot of feedback from their partners about what our customers truly care about. The content provides me with easy ways to communicate and educate customers on what can sometimes be complex topics — today’s threatscape, changes in security, and how centrexIT protects customers against the latest threats. Having just used the OpenDNS presentation deck at a large customer presentation, I can tell you that it really hits the mark.”
